Earlier this week I was set the challenge to focus on five things that I like about my body by Eilidh over at Mummy and Monkeys. Eilidh quite rightly pointed out that, like most women, she rarely considers the positive aspects of her own body, and recognises that this needs to change!
Like Eilidh (and probably the majority of women out there) I have been guilty of focusing on the negative aspects of my body and spend a good deal of time trying to avoid mirrors or having my photo taken. I had a ‘nose job’ nearly nine years ago and, while I wouldn’t advocate extensive plastic surgery, I must admit that having the large bump on the bridge of my nose removed has made a massive difference to my self-confidence (although I still think I have a big nose and don’t like having my photo taken from certain angles!).
Anyway, as instructed, I have taken a good look in the mirror and challenged myself to find five things that I like about my face and body. I will try to focus on these positive things more in future and try to worry less about the things that are less than perfect! Because really, let’s face it, nobody is perfect!
Here are my five things:
So there are my five things. Obviously I know there is far more to life than the way we look, but I think it’s important to love our bodies as much as our inner selves!
Passing the baton on, I tag to have a go:
